19th Century Winter Scene Oil on Canvas
Description: This large oil on canvas features an unsigned American winter landscape circa 1890. The image shows a man and dog, evidently returning home late in the day. Part of the stretcher is marked A. H. Abbott, patented 1887, which helps with the dating. The artist had an excellent sense of line, color, and mood. While we've been unable to attribute this work, we bought it in Ohio and suspect that the scene is northern Ohio or a similar area.
Dimensions: Size is about 37 3/4" x 32" for the frame and about 29 1/4" x 23 1/2" for the opening.
Condition: good with no tears and no restorations but craquelure. A cleaning by a professional might be a good idea. The frame does have chipping. A proper cleaning would probably bring out the color and tone. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.
Price: $4500.00 plus shipping and insurance.
Shipping: will vary based on location. Contact us for a quote. (We prefer to use US Priority Mail but will use other services based on customer request.)
International shipping rates by request.
To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191. It works best if you include the "item" code to let us know which item or items you're interested in. The code is at the beginning of each listing and is usually two letters followed by a number.
We'll confirm that the item is still available, make sure we agree on the total, and answer any questions you wish to throw our way. Checks or money orders should be made "Forrest OR Virginia Poston". We also take Paypal (including credit card payments).
We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.
If there's something you'd like us to find for you, let us know. We're just itching to please you, or maybe that was poison ivy we got into.
Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the "staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
Not just the usual suspects.
(Cats and batteries not included.)

try not to be overly picky about the
details. If we can put it in the bank and pay
some bills without any undo fuss, then we'll probably
take it. We're quite happy to take checks and money orders, and we're
signed up with Paypal,
which is the easiest route if you want to pay by credit
card. If you have some other method in mind,
get in touch, and we'll see what we can work
out. Monopoly money, anything you may have
printed in the basement, and chickens are right out.
